1
Make a lime syrup by putting the lime juice and 25g sugar into a saucepan. Bring to the boil, then turn down to a simmer until the liquid reduces and thickens into a sticky syrup. Set aside to keep warm
  • 6 limes
  • 25g of caster sugar
2
Separate 4 of the eggs into whites and yolks. In a large bowl, whisk the 4 egg yolks with 100g of the sugar until thick, then fold in the flour. Reserve the 4 egg whites for later use
  • 8 eggs
  • 100g of caster sugar
  • 400g of plain flour
3
In a heavy saucepan, bring the milk to the boil with the vanilla pod. Once boiling, remove from the heat and remove the vanilla pod
  • 1 vanilla pod
  • 500ml of milk
4
Pour the boiling milk onto the egg yolks mixture, a little at a time, whisking continuously so that there are no lumps. Return the mixture to the pan and cook gently, while stirring, for another 2 minutes - this will cook out the taste of the flour. Pour the mixture back into the bowl
5
Separate the remaining 2 eggs and beat the egg yolks into the mixture, along with the mascarpone and lime zest - the extra egg yolk will lighten the soufflés and help them to rise
  • 2 eggs
  • 60g of mascarpone
6
Cover the mixture with cling film to prevent a skin forming and leave to cool
7
To prepare the ramekins, melt the butter and with a pastry brush, paint over the inside of the soufflé ramekins carefully and completely, using upward strokes only. Dust with icing sugar, revolving the ramekins so that the butter is entirely covered with the sugar, then tap out the excess
  • 25g of butter
  • icing sugar
8
Preheat the oven to 220ºC/gas mark 7
9
Weigh out 400g of the cooled mascarpone mixture. Whisk the 6 egg whites with the remaining 50g sugar until stiff. Whisk a quarter of this into the mascarpone mixture, then fold in the rest very gently, taking care not to knock out any of the trapped air
  • 50g of caster sugar
10
Divide the mixture between your prepared moulds and put into the oven straight away
11
Bake for 8 minutes, until risen and golden brown. Take out of the oven and sprinkle with icing sugar. Serve immediately with the warm lime syrup in a jug, for added panache, break open the soufflés and pour in a little of the syrup
